If you love driving a full-size SUV but wish it came with more power, your wish has come true in the form of the new Suburban RST Performance Package. This power-filled package adds a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine with Magnetic Ride Control and a new Hydra-Matic 10-speed automatic transmission.
“The RST Performance Package made its debut on the Tahoe RST last spring, and the response from our customers was overwhelmingly positive,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevy Trucks Marketing and Advertising. “In fact, Tahoe RST with the Performance Package is the fastest-turning Tahoe model, and we’ve received customer requests to offer the same performance and power to Suburban RST.”
With this package, it will be the first time the 6.2-liter V8 has been offered on the Suburban. This engine uses a variety of systems to make it fast, sophisticated, and efficient. These features include Active Fuel Management, continuously variable valve timing, and direct fuel injection.
In addition, the Magnetic Ride Control feature promises to deliver a smooth ride. Its active suspension technology continually “reads” the road to improve body motion and on-road performance.
This high-performance package will be available on the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban, which will come out later this summer, though if you can’t wait, the 2018 Suburban is available now at Fuller Chevrolet GMC Truck.
